Tax Day LiberTEA Party Set for April 15

from the Harford County Dagger
From the Harford Campaign for Liberty:

The Harford County Campaign for Liberty is hosting a LiberTEA Festival on Tax Day – April 15, 2011 at 5:00PM until 7:00PM. The event will be held at the County Council Chambers office building located at 212 S Bond Street in Bel Air, MD.

This event is the 2-year anniversary of the unofficial kickoff of the Liberty movement across the United States. On April 15, 2009, more than 300 citizens and taxpayers stood in unity against big government spending and growth in the pouring rain in both Havre de Grace and Bel Air.

The name of this festival, LiberTEA, is a play on the words Liberty and TEA Party. The Liberty movement has been very influential in the past 2 years, prompting a huge flip in the US House of Representatives in the 2010 election and a growing conservative involvement in politics nationwide.

The office building at 212 S Bond Street is known as the “Black Box” and the property recently has been condemned by the County Government, prompting Harford County to plan to spend tens of millions of dollars on a new office building in Bel Air.

The LiberTEA Festival will include several patriotic skits and speeches on stage followed by a child-friendly carnival. Hosted by members of the grassroots organization, Campaign for Liberty, there will be games and entertaining educational activities for kids and adults to teach about the role of government. It is an all-ages event, and all supervised kids and grandchildren are welcome.

While the 2010 federal income tax returns are not due until April 18, the traditional deadline to file personal federal returns has been April 15.

The Harford Campaign for Liberty meets on every 4th Tuesday of the month at the Forest Hill Knights of Columbus hall located at 23 Newport Drive in Forest Hill. The Campaign for Liberty’s mission is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.
